It’s crazy how you can walk by a building so many times and have no idea how gorgeous the interior is. That’s pretty much the case for this apartment in the plateau, located right above Tampopo restaurant. I came across this feature on the Freshome blog and thought, Hey, I’ve seen that blue Buddha before!
MU Architecture Studio was commissioned to expand the living space of a private residence located on the second floor of this building. An extra floor was added and the place was converted into a duplex, linking the new floor via a modern glass and wood staircase that can now be found on my Christmas list.
The living room, kitchen, dining room and guest bedroom are on the ground level while the new addition hosts a master bedroom , bathroom and recreation room. The two rooftop terraces offer a great place to relax during the summer months and when it gets cooler, the jacuzzi is positioned to gaze up at the night sky.
What an amazing space! And right in the heart of the city to boot!

Prettypegs is a Swedish company that sells fun and colorful support legs for your furniture in a range of cool shapes and sizes. All you have to do is remove the existing legs and screw in the new ones. This is such an ingenious way to update and customize any of your IKEA pieces. The pegs look super original and look fairly easy to install if you’re not a DIY-er. We all love IKEA hacks but when you don’t have the resources or time for a DIY project, these could be a great option.
